Kenneth A. Barnebey

April 16, 1931 – February 02, 2018

Kenneth Alan Barnebey, a founding executive of Tropicana Products Inc. and a longtime Manatee County and Florida civic leader, died on February 2, 2018. He was 86.

Mr. Barnebey, who retired as Board Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tropicana in 1981, was part of the executive team assembled by company founder Anthony Rossi as the Italian immigrant built a start-up fruit-shipping company into an integrated industrial giant that shipped beverages around the world and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

A native of Fremont, Neb., Mr. Barnebey grew up in Temple Terrace in Hillsborough County and attended the University of Tampa, University of Maryland and University of Washington. A veteran of the Korean War, he joined Rossi’s fledgling fruit company in the early 1950s as customer service manager and rose to the company’s highest ranks as it expanded in east Bradenton. He served as Sales Manager, Vice President of Sales and Executive Vice President, before becoming President. From shipping fresh fruit to high-end clients in New York, including the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Tropicana invented a process called flash pasteurization, which rapidly raised the temperature of juice to preserve its fresh taste. By 1971, the company was sending 65-car trains loaded with frozen concentrate juice (known as the “Great White Juice Train”) to East Coast markets twice a week. Tropicana was sold to Beatrice Foods in 1978, and later to Pepsico, the current parent corporation.

After leaving Tropicana, Mr. Barnebey served as Deputy Chairman of American Agronomics and as a consultant to several of Florida’s largest firms. 

Long active in corporate and civic organizations, Mr. Barnebey served as a director of the National Association of Manufacturers, the Florida Citrus Commission, the Florida Processors Association and the Florida Governor’s Council of 100. The council is a private, nonprofit, non-partisan organization created in 1961 by Gov. Farris Bryant to advise him on key Florida issues from a business perspective. Mr. Barnebey was a personal friend of former Governors LeRoy Collins, Reuben Askew, Bob Graham, Bob Martinez and Lawton Chiles.

He served on the board of directors of the Asolo State Theatre, State College of Florida, and Manasota Water Basin Board. He chaired the Economic Development Council for the Manatee Chamber of Commerce. He was also on boards for The American Academy of Achievement, Florida State University, University of Tampa, Dependable Insurance Co., First Union Regional Bank, Community Bank, Executive Service Corps of Tampa, and the Tampa Bay Hall of Fame. 

He was a member of First Baptist Church of Bradenton, where he served on the church Deacon Board and taught Bible study for 50 years. In Blowing Rock, N.C., where he maintained a summer home, Mr. Barnebey was an associate member of First Baptist Church of Blowing Rock. He also was a director of the Blowing Rock Stage Company, Blowing Rock Hospital, Blowing Rock Home for Women and was president of the Blowing Rock Country Club.

Mr. Barnebey was preceded in death by his wife of 48 years, Faith, who died in 2016, as well as a daughter, Laurel. Survivors include a son, Mark (Marianne) of Bradenton; daughter, Kendra Whitehead (Brent) of Terra Ceia; and six stepchildren, Robert King High Jr. (Ruth Ann) and Holiday High, both of Tallahassee; Virginia (Cindy) Bunton, Ormond Beach; Valerie Bogos, Tampa; Bonnie McDonald (John), Whispering Pines, NC; and Susan High, Ormond Beach. He had 18 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He was also preceded in death by his parents, Hoyt and Mae Mott Barnebey; brothers Hoyt, Arthur and Keith; and sisters Gayle Flowers and Muriel Moore.

In his retirement, he enjoyed spending time with friends and family and organizing reunions in Bradenton and Blowing Rock. He was the rock of his family, a uniquely devoted husband and wise counselor to many and even followed all his grandchildren on Facebook. Loving beyond measure and much beloved, he will be forever missed.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to En Gedi Retreat, c/o Carl Walker, Post Office Box 774926, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477, a retreat for clergy and their families.

A visitation will be held at Griffith-Cline Funeral Home on Saturday, February 10, 2018 between 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., 720 Manatee Avenue West, Bradenton, FL 34205.

Jerry Don Boulton

January 17, 1934 – February 12, 2018

Jerry Don Boulton, 84, of Banner Elk passed into the eternal light and love of his Heavenly Father on February 12, 2018.  Cardiac difficulties had been lengthy but ended in peace.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Lois Boulton, and by his brother Jack.  He leaves behind his wife, Doris, daughter Caroline Fernandez, son-in-law, David and granddaughter, Elena, of Takoma Park, Maryland; a sister, Janet Shaw and husband Pete of Clinton, Iowa; and three nephews, Bill Wiseman of Linville, North Carolina, Scott Shaw of Wisconsin, and Brad Shaw of Minnesota.

Jerry graduated from Iowa State as an industrial engineer, but he wanted to fly and, rejecting a job with Amana, set out to fulfill that dream by joining the Navy.  In the near future he would receive his commission and Wings at Pensacola Naval Air Station.  There was an option now:  fly with the Navy or US Marines.  He chose the Marines.

Proud and patriotic, he served two tours in Vietnam as a pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps.  The first 13 months were spent flying high altitude (jet) missions and the second tour, search, rescue and evacuation (H-46) helicopter missions, before heading back state-side with orders to the Naval Air Rework Facility (NARF) in Cherry Point, NC.  Here his management skills were honed as Deputy Comptroller and in 1968 he received his Masters of Business Administration from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.

After retirement from active duty, he went back to work for the Navy in a civilian capacity.  His work took him repeatedly from Cherry Point to the Pentagon to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, where he was hired to help develop a joint logistics system for the Air Force, Navy, and Marines.  Following his civilian retirement in 2003, he and his wife moved to Banner Elk.

Happy and blessed, he enjoyed the High Country for 12 years.  Jerry was a member of the Church of the Holy Cross in Valle Crucis where he was a faithful Parishioner and servant.  His charm and sense of humor endured throughout his illness.  A beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, and dedicated man of service, Jerry touched many lives and will be sorely missed.

His funeral service will be held at the Church of the Holy Cross (122 Skiles Way, Valle Crucis, NC  28691) on Saturday, the 17th of Feb. at 1:00pm. Miliatary Honors, provided by the United States Marine Corp and American Legion Post 130, will follow at the Holy Cross Episcopal Church Columbarium. Friends and relatives will be greeted at the reception in the parish hall following the service. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Holy Cross “Mission Outreach Commission” which will go to help those of the area having urgent needs.  The contact number is (828)963-4609.
